Default I like this site better than the FaceBook Page

I think I like this site better than the Facebook page.
It seems that the Facebook page has gotten a little abusive to new riders and their questions. Kinda like a HD page.

This site has been more welcoming and informative and I appreciate everyone who takes time to post questions, fixes, and answers questions. Even if it's about Oil...

Thanks for the Brotherhood.

Born in the deepest jungles of India, I was raised by a friendly bear, until I was kidnapped by a pack of unruly baboons who taught me the finer points of swing jazz, all the while being stalked by an incompetent python and an evil but mis-understood tiger... Ummm, wait a minute, that's the Jungle book, no I was raised just outside of St. Louis, But...in the deepest jungles of a middle class neighborhood .

The whole Facebook thing turned me off so much that I deleted (not just deactivated) my account over a year ago. Yea, I lost access to the Victory buy/sell pages, but that just means I saved money

Cliques happen even in social media or maybe especially in social media. Cliques lead to rude behavior.

I'm still on FB but what I have done is unfollowed some pages and turned off notifications so they don't show up in my feed.

I use the FB buy sell group but I'm mostly here. Both this forum and the other are easily Google searchable for a massive amount of information. Unfortunately much of the pics are gone because of the Photobucket thing a while back but many pics remain. I have saved pages for adapting the built in GPS input to other GPS models among other useful bits.

I asked about 10,000 questions here before buying and everyone was very helpful to me. No doubts that I made a good choice buying a 2012 used CCT last May. It has needed some maintenance but that's normal for any used bike. My first experience changing wheel bearings and that was easy.
I don't see this as any more difficult than my Honda for maintenance. No coolant to fool with but tank is a bit more annoying to remove. (Still need to do that for my new air filter.)

Victory Facebook groups are filled with rude, crybaby pricks that attack new guys just trying to learn something. I've removed myself from all of them but a couple, one being Lloydz uncensored group, I enjoy that one.

This is the only site/forum I'm on. Got off facebook and the others several years back. My siblings got me to join facebook and they didn't like it when I got off. It isolated me from my family, brothers, sisters, cousins, etc..... But it is what it is and I ain't going back. I have no idea what they are doing nor they I. Yes I like this sight and don't dislike anyone. I don't agree with some members views but I do not dislike them.

I never got why anybody on ANY online forum would be pushy, rude and aggressive but it sure is prolific. I come to online groups to learn something or to share something, or sometimes to sell something, never to throw my weight around. But I don't do that in person either, it's just not my style. I bet half internet bullies are wimps in person...and the other half are so close-minded that they're not worth wasting my time with.

I'm not on Farcebook and have no inclination to be on it at all.
This forum and the V8 Buick Forum do me just fine Thank You.

bit of political and religous crap on here but I just disregard it, usually delete without even looking.
It seems to be the only thing that divides us from our common purpose "Riding and maintaining our Victorys!"
